A Comparison of the Effectiveness of an Inservice Program and a Preservice Program in Developing Certain Teaching Competencies.
Breit, Frank; Butts, David P.
Reported is a comparative study evaluating the effectiveness of an experimental teacher education program in developing knowledge of the processes of science and changing instructional decision behavior with preservice and inservice elementary school teachers. In general the program was successful with both groups, and it was concluded that preservice and inservice teachers who experience a similar teacher education program show some similar changes and some contrasting changes. Major differences were in the area of attitude change. (GR)
